Aussie Spec Fic Snapshot 2014 – The Interview Index

The Aussie Spec Fic Snapshot has taken place four times in the past 10 years. In 2005, Ben Peek spent a frantic week interviewing 43 people in the Australian spec fic scene, and since then, it’s grown every time, now taking a team of interviewers working together to accomplish!

In the lead up to Worldcon in London, from July 28 to August 10, 2014, Tsana Dolichva, Stephanie Gunn, Kathryn Linge, Elanor Matton-Johnson, Nick Evans, David McDonald, Helen Merrick, Jason Nahrung, Ben Payne, Alex Pierce, Tansy Rayner Roberts, Helen Stubbs, Katharine Stubbs, Tehani Wessely and Sean Wright blogged interviews for Snapshot 2014!

As we celebrated the breadth and depth of the Australian speculative fiction scene, 2012 Snapshot was also a bittersweet time and we took the opportunity to remember two well-loved members of the community who sadly passed away in the past year; Gitte Christensen and Philippa (Pip) Maddern.

You can find the past four Snapshots at the following links: 2005, 2007, 2010, 2012, and the 2014 Snapshot at the links below.
